problems. dr. jon lapook examine it is study and what it means. mandy clark one on one with the top u.s. commander in afghanistan on the future of the war and the decision to begin pulling out. the man accused of the worst war crimes in europe since the natsys shows nothing but contempt for justice. mark phillips has the pictures from the court. and on this fourth of july as the space shuttle program nears an end, jim axelrod asks "what happened to the flags on the moon?" >> it's beautiful. >> pelley: do those star spangled banners yet wave? captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, chantix is the most popular anti-smoking drug on the market with annual sales of nearly $800 million. but a study out today raises new safety questions about it. chantix has already been linked to an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and now to a higher risk of heart disease we asked dr. jon lapook to tell us what we need to know about these new findings. >> reporter: today's study is worrisome news for the more than seven million americans who
to an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and now to a higher risk of heart disease we asked dr. jon lapook to tell us what we need to know about these new findings. >> reporter: today's study is worrisome news for the more than seven million americans who have taken chantix. a new analysis links the pill to a 72% increase in the risk of heart problems. johns hopkins dr. sonal singh led the research. >> it is causing the same problems we are trying to prevent, that's why it's not worth the risk. we need to prevent cardiac disease among smokers, not increase it. >> reporter: the review involves more than 8,000 patients. while a 72% increased risk sounds alarming, a companion editorial entitled "is it a heart breaker?" notice that heart problems are still rare, occurring in only about 1% of patients taking chantix. the drug maker pfizer questions the way the analysis was conducted. dr. gail walk well is vice president of medical affairs for pfizer. >> we will continue to do a more in-depth look as the f.d.a. is asking us to do. to date we have not seen evidence of important risks to the heart
of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai
. >> reporter: jon huntsman? >> he's refreshingly kind of -- comes across as non-ideological. conservative, but practical. i think governor romney's doing a better job as a candidate this time than he did four years ago. i'm not surprised by how well michele bachmann's done. i've been watching her speak. she comes across as a real person. >> reporter: ever the political junkie. jake tapper, abc news, chicago. >>> and one of the reasons michele bachmann comes across as a real person is because she's willing to share so much about her personal life. last night, she opened up about suffering a miscarriage, a first for a presidential candidate. abc's sharyn alfonsi has more on the candidate who is putting her family's struggles and joys at the center of her campaign. >> reporter: it happened at a packed town hall meeting in south carolina. >> after our second chchd was born, we became pregnant with a third baby. and it was an unexpected baby, but of course we were delighted to have this child. and the child was coming along, and we ended up losing that child. >>>>eporter: the crowd stood still
the people vying for the president's jobber were also hard at work this weekend. former utah governor jon huntsman barn stormed in new hampshire, which hosts the nation's first primary. minnesota representative michele bachmann was out in full force in iowa, six weeks ahead of the state's straw poll. she is running neck and neck with presumed front runner mitt romney, according to a recent state poll, and this weekend she tried to build on that momentum. lesser known candidate businessman herman cain, also tried to shore up support in the hawk why state, stumping at a godfather pizza, the company he used to run. the seoul african-american gop candidate recently released this video touting his tea party credentials. >> i was in a tea party before it was cool. >> reporter: in ohio over the weekend, cain said he's gaining traction. >> if you average out all of the polls that i'm in third place behind mitt romney and michele bachmann, and they have twice the name id, i think i have the ball because as my name iid spreads, i have nowhere to go but up. >> even former president bill clinton is w
. it had dropped to 4.5%. during that same period of time you had 7 to 8 mill jon jobs created in the united states of america, so the bush tax cuts did exactly what they were supposed to do. unfortunately everything went awry when nancy pelosi took over the house of representatives with her philosophy of government and senator harry reid took over the suns senate, and with the threats that those two and their philosophies posed to the job creators in america, you saw our unemployment immediately start to go the wrong direction, but the facts are there, look at the department of labor statistics. >> sir, sir, i need to get to the -- >> the deficit declined during this same period of time. >> i need to get to the debt ceiling. the fact is those tax cuts are still in place, so the fact that anyone got in office didn't change the tax code at all, which is not the statement you made. >> in january of 2007. >> so the fact that congress changed has nothing to do with the tax cuts, they're still in play and unemployment is 9.2, so we can have different opinions, we can't have differen
, and jon huntsman, they all have governed states and have a record saying i helped with unemployment and this kind of thing. i am just trying to figure why -- you're trying to decide why you have a better chance to beat president obama, and i am trying to decide why you would think that given that they also have records? >> they have records and impressive records, but i don't remember their states being in the kind of condition new york city was in. i got elected on the campaign theme you can't do any worse, because we were in such bad shape. we were the crime capitol of america. we were supposed to be in decline and never come back again. "time" magazine wrote an article saying new york city's best days are behind it, and it's what they are writing about america now. we turned that around, and when i look at that as objectively as you can about yourself or the situation you're in, it seems to me that's roughly where the country is right now. >> you sound like do i have a better shot at it, you sound like you have made up your mind? >> i haven't. i have been here six times this year
't just -- as jon stewart says we can't just leave it there and pretend there is an equal kind of split. what you see is democrats more than the median voters want compromise, and the democrats led by some people who aren't looking out for the long-term interests of the united states and our credit are driving us up to the brink, there are areas we can cut spending, but not like this. you just had a prior segment about the proposals looking at tonight, the cbo, the congressional budget office, won't even have time to score these before we vote on them. that's not how you reach a reasonable compromise, when you can't get factual numbers. >> i want to know if we're having the wrong conversation here. you tweeted me the link to your article. and i found this line very interesting. pew estimates 85% of economic coverage, talking about in the media, is about the debt battle, not the unemployment and recession that form the real threat to most americans concerned about the economy. should the real talk be about jobs, jobs, jobs and not debt and deficit? >> yes. we're in a real jobs crisis. an
